    Might be the only way he'll get to win



    I never really...keep up with the scoring, and never think it looks right when Paul wins every time I swear Ian gets things right just as much!

    Yes, they would be great. I also think Chris Evans or Jerry Seinfeld would be good!

    The best episode ever.

    For guest host I would say:

    The Stig
    Louis Theroux / Michael Moore
    John Sargeant
    Janet Street Porter (has probably already been one but I missed it)
    Jade Goody - can you imagine! They'd pulverise her.
    Kiefer Sutherland

    I think them keeping the guest hosts was a good idea, but i also think that ian should have at least one try, but i think that having guest hosts makes the program more interesting and definitely more funnier, but i wonder why none of the people that have been panelists so often (Germaine Greer, Will Self and Ken Livingstone etc.) have never been hosts. I also wonder what would happen if they had Boris Johnson and Ken Livingstone on the same episode.

    Tub of Lard gets my vote too. I like the idea of the Stig - he would be about as effective as the tub of lard, just sitting there. I wouldn't mind seeing Agnus back for an episode - just imagine what they would do to him! And Ian as host and panalist! LMAO! I can imagine him blatantly discriminating against Paul and yet still end up loosing!

    Ian always answers the question most of the way and then paul sneaks in and says the complete answer before Ian gets a chance. especially during the odd one out round
